Code of Ethics

Being transparent is the up most importance to me when creating my blog posts. Transparency is the best way for me to build trust with my readers. By posting this code, it holds me responsible for my posts. I have adapted this code of ethics from my University of Oregon professor, Kelli Matthews.

  1. I will tell the truth.
  2. I will write deliberately and with accuracy.
  3. I will acknowledge and correct mistakes promptly.
  4. I will preserve the original post, using notations to show where I have made changes so as to maintain the integrity of my publishing.
  5. I will never delete a post.
  6. I will not delete comments unless they are spam, off-topic, contain personal attcks or hate speech. All comments are moderated.
  7. I will reply to emails and comments when appropriate, and do so promptly.
  8. I will strive for high quality with every post- including basic spellchecking.
  9. I will stay on topic.
  10. I will disagree with other opinions respectfully.
  11. I will link to online references and original source materials directly.
  12. I will disclose conflicts of interest.
  13. I will keep private issues and topics private.
